Ask a Question

I haven't had a 99 for years, so was surprised to read this article

Please feel free not to comment or put up your own topics. Unlike you both, unless I am interested in the topic I don't feel the need to comment Ann1984 & @Golfforal

The reason I select ask a question rather than in the news is that I want to get into conversation about the topics, unless the comments are not nice. For example I liked the comment below as it was funny. Whilst yours are just dismissive.

I currently am working from home, the topics I post on here are normally what I read from the Metro which is what I would normally talk about with colleagues, did you see.... Small talk.

I don't know why you have to be so sarcastic, the chat section is just a bit of fun. I personally read the chat topics and comment on topics I like not for just for points.

As I said above please feel free not to comment Golfforall

Il sure they will find them somewhere no doubt. If not is it really a drama? No if it was a shortage of gin or wine thatโ€™s another story ๐Ÿคฃ

Oh vodka! I saw it and thought who has been buying these - the weather has been dreadful and we haven't been able to go out. Only thing I could think of was that icecream sellers have been living on 99s๐Ÿ˜Š

If things get really bad they could always substitute with a Galaxy Ripple. This would also be an ideal time for Cadbury to bring back the Spira. They would go well with a Mr. Whippy ๐Ÿฆ

Oh my God, I love them Spira's, so wish they'd bring them back! Prefer them over the Twirl.

My mates got loads, he has his one ice cream van Company. I will ask him if heโ€™s found it a problem. Anyways there are non genuine flakes out there so Iโ€™m sure they will find something to stick in it.

Anyone remember the witches hat?

Or the scooby doo ?

Both the same juts different names.

Itโ€™s ice cream with a lolly on top.

Or you can get two ice cream stuck together then with a lolly on top.

I used to work for him many years ago

My husband is from London and he didn't know what a witches hat was, so I think it is down to area ๐Ÿ™‚

beccatavender ooh, never heard of a witches hat or Scooby Do. All this talk of chocolate is making me hungry ๐Ÿ˜Š. Like ACR said, a Ripple isnโ€™t too bad a substitute or perhaps even a Twirl? I think weโ€™re all hankering for sunshine and seaside what with the restrictions and wet weather. ๐Ÿฆ
